Dragunov/PSL/AK

Dragunov/PSL/AK

Is there really such a thing as a Romanian Dragunov? No. The Romanian PSL is marketed as such

and even some of them have Dragunov written on the reciever. The PSL is actually a large Kalashnikov rifle.

Accuracy is similar to a Dragunov/SVD . To the casual observer, they even look alike. Major differences

are the gas system, trigger groups, and receivers. The SVD has a milled receiver, while that of the PSL

are stamped. Here are some pics of all three. Note how closely related the AK and PSL are.

Yep, PSL

from what I have read the differences in accuracy between the SVD and PSL are negligible

was the winning bid of $660 which wasn't bad at all considering I have seen them going for closer to $800. The interesting thing about mine is that it had it's bayo lug removed which is in line with importing requirements but there are no importer marks anywhere on the receiver or anywhere else for that matter.

weapons accuracy is the ammo, the two best rounds are the 7N1 and 7N14 Russian sniper ammo.
The 7N1 was the original load developed by Russian armorer Sabelnikov in conjunction with the development of the SVD back in the late 1950's. It has a steel jacketed projectile with an air pocket, steel core, and a lead knocker in the base. The 7N14 is a new load developed for the SVD. It consists of a 151 grain projectile which travels at the same 2723 fps, but it has a lead core projectile and is supposed to be the more accurate of the two. Nikolai Bezborodov, head of R&D at Izhmash, stated that it was the most accurate load for the SVD. Unfortunately very little made it in to the US for resale. The Russian government has never been interested in exporting their official sniper ammo.

They are fun to shoot, I have never had any issues with mine, just make sure to clean after you get done shooting.

See, I'm a man of simple tastes. I like dynamite, and gunpowder... And gasoline! Do you know what all of these things have in common? They're cheap!
